Date(s): 15th November 2020

The Nene is great for anyone who is just starting out in Freestyle/White Water or has done a moving water taster session and wants to take a step to the next level. Its a relatively small, easy to access course, great for coaching and a great place for a day out as a paddler or spectator. We shall be heading over for their “Park and Play” session as a group, you don’t need to book on but it can be worth ringing ahead a day or two in advanced just to check the conditions are good and that they will be open.


At times when club activities are able to operate, participants shall be expected to self-assess at what stage they can suitably return, and only return if the current stage we are operating at applies to them. The club may increase or decrease the reopening stage at any point so please check back against the event or guidance to check the stage on the day before arriving at any activity.

  • Read the Blackwater Valley Canoe Club COVID-19 Guidance
